TwigIt actually depends a bit. The softest ski in the tips/tails I can think of since the EP pro is the Blend, I'm riding the new one at the moment and they are so damn soft. The Blend does stiffen a little as you move towards the center of the ski though. The Edgeless is close to as soft as the Blend, but it's a smoother flex, a touch stiffer in the tips/tails but doesn't stiffen as much as you move towards the center of the ski. The J Skis Vacation is also up there. It's super soft immediately in front of and behind the binding area but again, not as soft as the Blend in the extremes. To me personally, the Vacation feels the most 'unstable' of the three on landings because of its shape, which also makes it arguably the easiest to flex. The Vishnu Wet is a much stiffer ski than any of these other options, but its shape also makes it extremely easy to butter and play on. For me, it's the best ski for buttering on of these options.
SavageBiffCan you elaborate a lil on how shapes affect different types of skiing primarily best shapes for buttering ...
I find more taper easier for the beginning rotation of a nose butter if your actually pressing during the initial rotation
